never heard of them... i dont trust them though, respectable look or not. there is a reason they arent well known.

and keep in mind.. is the amp you're buying 2000 watts peak power or is that rms? if its peak you'll need 2 of them to run 2 or more 15's. not to mention 4 gauge or bigger wiring. not to mention a capacitor. then you'll have to 4 channel amp the door speakers just so you can hear the words.

i do this shit for a living man, you dont wanna half ass it or you'll wind up paying someone like me to do it.lol

haha yeah you make good points.. the amp stuff is pretty critical. i hate RMS vs Peak... they just shouldn't mention peak because it doesnt even matter... everyone gets them mixed up and they think they have some crazy big amp and its not haha. 2 15s and (real) 2000 watt amp in a ranger might be classified as suicide.. ha

peak power is just a selling point for the manufacturers.

2 15's and a real 2000 watt amp wouldnt be suicide, it would sound decent.. but too droned out. my recommendation to him would be one really good 10" sub. or 2 decent 10" subs. anything more in our trucks is excessive and bro-ish.
